Finding talent from within- Introducing a new member to the Export Team!



Kentec continues to recognise the talent our staff show us day to day in our business which is why we invest in our employees and offer progression opportunities to staff.

Congratulations to Steve Dawes who has been added as a new addition to the Export Sales Team

Steve joined Kentec towards the end of summer 2015 as a temporary member of the Despatch team; he then became Team Leader of that department towards the end of 2015 and continued to head up the department until his move into the Export Sales Team in early 2017. Steve will be responsible for processing and shipping orders for EMEA customers and providing general support to the Customer Services Team.

Thank you for visiting us at Intersec, Dubai!




For another year running, Kentec exhibited at the annual fire and security show, Intersec, which is held in the Middle-Eastern city of Dubai. Intersec is a great platform for attracting many visitors around the world and for Kentec to showcase the latest in fire detection to the ever growing Middle-Eastern market.

This year at Intersec we had a brilliantly designed stand that showcased some of our market leading products including our UL/FM range of panels which are approved for Middle-Eastern markets. The stand also featured our OEM range of products which can be custom engineered to suit customer needs. Alongside our other products that were on display, Kentec showcased the innovative Taktis range including the Taktis voice which is a voice evacuation panel. Visitors were treated to live demonstrations of how the product would work in a situation where needed.

We hope you had the opportunity to come and meet Business Development Manager for the Middle East & Africa, Chris Matthews. This was Chris’s first Intersec show with Kentec after taking up the role in March 2016 and it was a very busy one! Chris enjoyed meeting everyone who came on to the stand to discuss Kentec products and is looking forward to working with you all in the future.

Over the duration of the show we had a vast amount of visitors from many different countries; it was great to see so many people who were interested in what Kentec had to offer at Intersec. It was also great for the team to catch up with many existing customers to maintain our strong business relationships and we would like to thank all visitors who came on to our stand to see us during the show!

Intersec 2018 will be held from Sunday 21st to Tuesday 23rd January 2018 and Kentec will be exhibiting so we hope to see you there!
